  1. Absolutely and owning a few blank firing rifs myself this is very expensive. I completely agree so retailers my choose to accept some may not. One thing I would add to this is before you pay to join something like the MVT make sure you read through the T&Cs as they may have rules around weapons training and/or the amount of events you have to attend each season. For example the group I’m a member of me all have pli through the group but in order to have membership of the group we have to attend at least 3 events per season to qualify to maintain membership for the
  2. MVT is the military vehicle trust, this means you get covered until there Public liability insurance for re-enactment events which is a defence for owning a rif 🙂
  3. Exactly my point, the circumstance of the defence is where the selling needs to work on trust. 99% of people have a genuine reason to buy a rif and you can get a feel from someone If they are being suspicious. You could just pay membership to the MVT and then buy one as a reenactor. As with real firearms being above board makes you an easy target for the law and the 1% who flout the rules ruin it for everyone else
  4. My view is the VCRA is very unambiguous and ambiguous at the same time. The defences are very clear, the ambiguity creeps in when you apply the defence to your circumstance. If you are a film maker and I was selling you a rif I would ask proof of the production and how you would use them in the production. Otherwise what would stop people starting a production company on companies for £30 or whatever it is and they purchasing all the rifs they want. As it’s been said the vendor needs to do the due diligence as they are in the firing line if they sell to someone who they are
  5. Yes it seemed from his thoughts that the humble German Squaddie was perhaps not as good shot as they may have believed.
  6. With shipping I know UPS are adding a 3-5% additional charge on shipping and i imagine over carries will do the same. I can only imagine the end user will pick up this additional cost
  7. As long as you don't tell everyone you was in Red Sabre Squadron and personally shot Osama who care what you wear. Its your load out, however i wouldn't wear specific unit patches or awards. Generic is probably the way forward. And most ex soldiers can tell the difference between a walt and someone just wearing military kit quite quickly.
  8. I’ve been thinking about this. Who should cover the PayPal fees? Should the seller should as they want to get money for an item. Or the buyer as they want it. I totally agree all of a sudden item is 10% more expensive with shipping and Fees. Who should pick up the cost.
  9. I don’t understand false weathering/wear unless it’s done by someone who knows what they are doing. This has just devalued the rifle and means who ever buys it next has to put even more work into it. A crappy paint job doesn’t add value.
  10. Hi all just need a bit of help. I have a blank firing MP40 I’m looking to sell but would like recommendations on the best place to sell be it website or forum? Cheers GG
  11. Also has his mobile number in the add, me thinks this is to delete any evidence of wrong doing if anyone asks questions.
